    Anyone that thinks England will tank Sweden haven’t watched Sweden this World Cup.

    Sweden have a great record against Engerlund, but fancy the * to get through.

    Maybe but watching a group of 80 year olds racing each other in the 100 meters could be counted as exciting as well tbf.

    Metaloutlet was started as a web shop but had to shut it down a few years ago, so now I am selling on other platforms. But I am about to stop running it because I don’t have the time anymore :)

    Awww that's a shame, hopefully you're doing well with whatever else you do.

    I'll pass on the site to him, he's forever buying t-shirts and other merch from sites, he could probably sell you t-shirts :56:

    I’ve already heard about two bbqs on Saturday with a bit of a Swedish theme and TVs in the garden :56:

    This is all lots of fun but it kills me that we can’t do this for Scotland at the World Cup instead :54:

    Amen. I know our national team ain't great, but there have been worse teams than ours at this WC. Nature of the qualifying system I suppose.

    I am bias because I detest english soccer fans and by default their engerland team! Otherwise no problem with England or English people, no different to any other, some good some bad in typical human proportion. I use engerland more as a separation from the typical English person you might encounter away from all this.

    Obvious bias makes it difficult to know if what you conclude is logic, but there was no bias needed to notice obvious factors that will have relevance for next match.
    • the engerland fans have bottled it, outnumbered by colombia fans last night, their supposed tough boys shown up as typical pathetic bully boys who know their limits and are scared of going to Russia.
      Fan motivation is an edge in any match, Sweden and those for Sweden will outnumber them considerably.
    • engerland looked very tired last 15 minutes and were on the ropes near end of regular and in over time they were out on their feet.
    • Colombia were a poor side last night, had little on field smart yet england needed luck in the end to scrape through.
    then consider that the next match is played @3pm (6pm Samara) which will likely mean even more testing conditions. no rain or full cloud is forecast 28-30 C with external typical 35% humidity the stadium temps and humidity will likely be much higher than that, so these will be very testing conditions which favour sides who are used to setting up to defend deep and counter attack. So it will almost certainly be chess like tactics game, the sort of game that Iceland would have loved and Sweden have proven they can cope with twice against Italy pre tournament. So no clear favorite but Sweden do have an edge to win this.
    Russia will be in the final regardless

    The English have had it easy so far and Columbia were incredibly negative against them last night..

    Sweden will be tough to beat but so are England Tbf, they have good strength and pace throughout the team and Trippier is an excellent wing-back..

    Will be a close one, you’d think that maybe Sterling is due one good game.
